Kids learn through play. Kids yoga classes are fun, inspirational, educational, and unique every time. Children teach us how to live as true yogis, in the moment, in the full expression of who we are. Teaching yoga to kids is very rewarding when we allow them to teach us the important lessons that many of us forget as adults. A great kids yoga class is taught by a teacher who can hold a safe space of learning and growth for the children, providing them with an environment where they can do what comes naturally to them as little yogis.
If you work with kids, this training will give you the ability to relate the wisdom of yoga to the kids in your life at a fraction of the cost of other kids-yoga training programs. This training is for anyone who wants to see the kids in their lives reap the benefits of the ancient practice of yoga as well as for yoga teachers and experienced yoga students. Yoga physically improves strength, flexibility, and coordination; mentally it improves concentration and focus, while also enhancing a sense of calm, and improving the ability to relax. What kids don't need that? This training is perfect for:
- Daycare providers
- School teachers
- Gym teachers
- Occupational therapists
- Physical therapists
- Yoga teachers
Our kids yoga teacher training teaches age-appropriate yoga poses, games, language, and teaching techniques for kids ages three and up. This 14-hour Yoga Alliance- and NETA-approved training covers yoga history, philosophy, energetics, yoga postures, games, class planning, and sequencing. Also covered are some pragmatic aspects of teaching yoga like how to integrate kids yoga into community ed. programs, elementary and preschool programs, classes at yoga studios, and other therapeutic settings. Training materials for Kids Yoga include a teacher training manual with sample class plans. These materials are included in the cost of the training and will be distributed on the first day of class. There are no prerequisites for this training.
